This study explored the resilience of children with incarcerated parents in South Korea, a context where parental incarceration is highly stigmatized and under-researched. We conducted semi-structured interviews with 14 adolescents who had experienced parental incarceration, and analyzed their narratives using thematic analysis. We identified four main themes of resilience: coping strategies, social support, positive making sense for personal growth and future orientation. We will discuss how they were influenced by the cultural and institutional factors in South Korea, as well as by their individual and family characteristics. We will also suggest some implications for policy change and social work practice to better support this vulnerable population.
